Matt Brown met the CEO of one of SA’s most highly regarded digital outfits called Injozi randomly in a lift and they wound up chatting about all things business. Then, just an hour later, he was introduced to the CEO of 8909 through an associate – and they hit it off straight away. Matt was immediately intrigued by the stories they had to share, and more specifically how both their businesses were at very different life stages and facing very different challenges. One specific challenge is about scale – namely, how do you scale a business and do it in a strategic fashion and without being reckless – because starting a business is one thing but scaling it is an entirely different story. It takes specific skills, great decision making and above all, experience.
